Hi I was wondering about people's responses to sending letters to their italian families. I am worried about sending mine because I am unsure about the response I will get. I don't want to upset anyone. I know there are a few secrets I am sure that my unknown italian family know, which I know very little about.
I found my gfather's family in Italy by writing to all with his surname in the town he came from (there were only 26, it's a small town)...Within a few days, literally, I was getting emails, phone calls & letters in the mail, from those who were actually directly related to me & some who were more distant relatives.
In September, I went over to visit them & now we are FAMILY. We speak on the phone & write emails. They are as glad I found them as I was. Believe me, sending the letters was worth it!
